Some will continue to argue the womens hockey tournament at the 2014 Winter Olympics remains a two-team race between Canada and the United States. Torry Holt Jersey . That may indeed be the case, but Finland threw a mighty scare into Team Canada on Monday. The Finns matched Canadas speed and were the more aggressive team through the first two periods, but Canadas offence took control in the third period scoring three goals, blanking Finland 3-0. Canada outshot Finland 27-10 through 40 minutes, but couldnt beat goaltender Noora Raty. Meghan Agosta-Marciano finally gave Canada a 1-0 lead on its fourth power pay of the game when she drilled a slap shot to the top corner at 9:27 of the third period. That was followed by a goal by another veteran, Jayna Hefford, who deked two Finnish defenders and then fired a high shot from in tight. Late in the third Rebecca Johnston scored her second goal of the 2014 Olympics, converting a three-on-one. Finland has finished third or fourth at every Olympics and World Championship tournament since it began international play, so the Canadians knew they were in for a tough game. "They just never give up," said Canadian forward Brianne Jenner. "They are a hard-working team and they clog the middle of the ice. We knew that coming in so our game plan was to not be impatient and stick with what we wanted to do and it turned out that it worked in the third period."Cory Littleton Womens Jersey .com) - One point guard will return, while another will sit when the Minnesota Timberwolves visit American Airlines Center to take on the Dallas Mavericks. Taylor Rapp Jersey .C. -- Theyll remember the OT from the first Syracuse-Duke game -- and the Ts that decided Round 2. TORONTO -- Toronto starter Mark Buehrle needed just six frames Wednesday night to reach the 200-inning plateau for the 14th consecutive season. He achieved his goal in style by nearly going the distance in one of his finest starts of the year. Buehrle was masterful on a cool, breezy evening at Rogers Centre, striking out 10 and allowing three hits over eight-plus innings as the Blue Jays topped the Seattle Mariners 1-0. "He was as good as youre ever going to see him," said Toronto manager John Gibbons. "He was strong the whole night. His ball was really ducking and darting in there." Buehrle threw 64 of his 93 pitches for strikes and allowed one walk. The announced crowd of 16,836 gave him a standing ovation when he reached the 200-inning mark and again when he was pulled after giving up a leadoff single in the ninth. "It means a lot because I had put this goal on myself in spring training," Buehrle said. "Obviously getting there means a lot. Its disappointing because were going home on Sunday, were not going to continue playing -- especially the way I felt and the way my ball was moving tonight, I almost want to throw tomorrow. "I felt that good and my ball was moving. I guess thats the disappointing thing and (its) frustrating that I feel this good and Im done." Toronto (81-77) was eliminated from post-season contention a night earlier. The Mariners playoff hopes took another hit with their fifth straight loss. Seattle (83-75), which has an elimination number of two, is three games out of an American League wild-card spot. The game was scoreless until the eighth inning. Munenori Kawasaki drew a one-out walk, Anthony Gose struck out and Ryan Goins followed with a blooper into shallow right-centre field. Kawasaki was running on contact and was waved home when the ball dropped in and took a big bounce on the artificial turf. Taijuan Walker (2-3) was the hard-luck loser. He pitched a career-high eight innings, allowing one earned run, four hits and a walk while striking out six. "That young man threw a tremendous ball game," said Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon. "He really stepped up, he did everything we asked him to do." Buehrle (13-10) gave up a leadoff single to Chris Taylor in the ninth. Reliever Aaron Sanchez came on and picked off pinch-runner James Jones at first base before getting the next twwo outs for his third save. Orlando Pace Jersey. Toronto extended its winning streak to three in a game that took only one hour 59 minutes to complete. It was the first major-league game under the two-hour mark since June 2012. The teams breezed through the first three innings with a Jose Bautista single and double by Seattles Corey Hart providing the only early ticks in the hit column. Bautista, who entered the game with an American League-leading .409 on-base percentage, has reached base safely in 27 straight games. Dustin Ackley beat out an infield single to open the fourth inning. Buehrle needed only three pitches to get Robinson Cano to pop up and cleanup man Kendrys Morales to hit into a 6-4-3 double play. Walker answered with a similar display in the fifth. The slow-moving Dioner Navarro led off with a drive to the wall but stayed at first base rather than challenge right-fielder Logan Morrisons arm. The Seattle starter got Dalton Pompey of Mississauga, Ont., to pop up and Kawasaki to ground into a 4-6-3 double play. Buehrle put on the leadoff man in the sixth by issuing a walk to Mike Zunino, who moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Taylor. The veteran southpaw responded by fanning Austin Jackson and Ackley. Gose made a great sliding catch on a sinking liner in shallow centre field to deny Morrison a hit in the seventh. Buehrle fanned Hart and Zunino to keep the game scoreless. "The way my ball was moving, it was almost at times moving too much where I couldnt control it," Buehrle said. "(I was) getting ahead in the strike zone, hitting my spots and the ball was moving." Notes: It was Buehrles 461st consecutive start without a disabled list stint. ... Buehrle has recorded at least 10 wins, 200 innings and 30 starts in 14 straight seasons -- the longest active streak in the major leagues. Hes the first pitcher to achieve that feat since Gaylord Perry did it over 15 years from 1966-80. Don Sutton also recorded at least 200 innings pitched per year in the same span. The 1981 strike ended both streaks. ... Left-hander Daniel Norris (0-0, 5.40 ERA) is scheduled to start for the Blue Jays in the series finale Thursday night. The Mariners will counter with right-hander Tom Wilhelmsen (3-2, 2.10). ... Toronto will close out the regular season with a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles beginning Friday. ' ' '

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Zhaire Smith Jersey . -- San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is thin and happy. He showed up at the Giants spring camp a few days ago after a winter of rejuvenation in his native Venezuela. He refined his nutritional intake, got in shape and played a little ball in the Venezuelan Winter League. The result is a noticeable weight loss. How much is up for debate -- he would not divulge how much he has dropped when he met with the media. He has been listed at 240. He said reports that the weight loss reached 40 pounds were incorrect. As for what is behind the transformation --he had a similar one between 2010 and 2011 - Sandoval said it doesnt necessarily have anything do to with the fact that his three-year, $17.15 million deal expires after the season. Sandoval said he would be open to discussing an extension before the season begins. General Manager Brian Sabean indicated recently the Giants also might be willing to make something happen. "Im not going to say no. If it happens, it happens," Sandoval said. At 27, he is entering his prime. "Im happy with myself and want to come out and show my talents," he said after hitting .278 with 14 home runs and 79 RBIs in 2013, a year in which he spent some time on the disabled list. "People say I can do a lot better. I just want to show that I have grown up and that I take my job seriously. But I really dont care what other people say." Unless those other people happen to be teammates. Sandoval said he talked to a handful of teammates toward the end of last season about his approach. They included starting pitcher Matt Cain, catcher Buster Posey and outfielder Hunter Pence. "I feel blessed to hear from those guys. When a former MVP (Posey) says something, you listen," Sandoval said. Pence said he did not speak his mind in a critical tone. "I dont think I got on him. I just encouraged him. Hes the one who did all the work," Pence said. "Were just thrilled to see him come in at the weight he has." Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he also talked to Sandoval at the end of the season. "Sometimes its like being a parent," Bochy said. "You tell one of your kids something, and it goes in one ear and out the other. Sometimes it means more coming from a peer. "He knows that he can do many things on the baseball field. He has to be consistent, have discipline every day. It is easier when you were 21-22-23 years old and now you have to put more work into it." NOTES: A portion of the pitchers did some conditioning and threw bullpen sessions on Saturday. Most of the others, including starters Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum and closer Sergio Romo, will take their turns on Sunday. "No radar guns, just working on stuff," Bochy said . . . Posey and the catchers also were able to take a few hacks in the batting cage . . . Pence said most of the players are coming to camp with an edge. "We dont believe what happened last year is who we are," he said . . . the team has announced that beginning this (regular) season, all fans entering AT&T Park will be screened with metal detectors. This complies with Major League Baseballs mandate that all teams begin using metal detectors by the start of the 2015 season. Moses Malone Jersey .

Stevens was content to focus on the improvement the Boston Celtics made from one night to the next in a 111-81 preseason victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday night. Boston was winless in its first three exhibition games under Stevens, who was hired away from Butler to take over the storied franchise at the age of 36. "If Im not going to count those last three, I cant count this one I guess," Stevens joked. The Celtics scored at least 24 points in every quarter, shot 54 per cent and -- most importantly -- looked little like the team that lost to Philadelphia 97-85 the night before. "We got the ball up the floor. We played with good pace. I just thought we didnt labour as much offensively as we did yesterday," Stevens said. The Celtics capitalized on a short-handed version of the Knicks, who were playing their third game in four nights and rested Carmelo Anthony and most of his veteran teammates. Rookie Kelly Olynyk had 15 points and six rebounds for the Celtics, who scored the first 10 points and never trailed. Boston started the third quarter with a 20-5 run against a JV version of the Knicks, who also played the night before. "I know its a back-to-back and Im playing young players, but againn youve got to be proud to wear a Knick uniform and tonight was an embarrassment," coach Mike Woodson said. Allen Iverson 76ers Jersey. "Whoever we put out there, we should be able to compete." New York also rested starters Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler as well as Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih. Kenyon Martin also sat out and has yet to play this preseason. Ike Diogu led the Knicks (1-2) with 21 points and eight rebounds, including five on the offensive end. Toure Murry added 16 points and Andrea Bargnani scored 11. Olynyk, a 7-footer from Gonzaga drafted by the Celtics with the 13th overall pick, also had six rebounds, three steals and a block as the Celtics won a "home" game played about 50 miles north of Boston. The Celtics outrebounded New York 45-34. "I think it eased Coach Stevens nerves a little bit. I know hes not used to losing," said Jared Sullinger, who scored 12 for Boston. "We have a blueprint now. Youve got to follow the blueprint to success and understand that the way we played today should be the way we play all the time." Avery Bradley and Jordan Crawford scored 13 apiece for Boston. MarShon Brooks scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half as the Celtics let their younger players finish off the rout. ' ' '
TORONTO - With just over an hour until the start of Thursdays free agent signing frenzy, Masai Ujiri delivered on a promise he made following last seasons playoff run. Larry Bird Jersey. Greivis Vasquez, the final piece of that puzzle, joined teammates Kyle Lowry and Patrick Patterson in recommitting to the Raptors, agreeing to a two-year, $13 million deal late Wednesday evening. Vasquez, a restricted free agent, became the latest Raptor to re-up with the team he helped lead to a franchise-best 48-win season and division title last year. Bringing him back, along with the rest of the personnel responsible for the clubs resurgence, has been an offseason priority for Ujiri. "As far as Im concerned, keeping our core group going forward... those guys are priorities for us," the Raptors GM had said after extending head coach Dwane Casey in May. "And if you want to build, I think a team where we have young players, we have to build continuity. When free agency comes, we have to attack our guys first." That he did, taking care of the heavy lifting before the July moratorium period was lifted at 12:01 AM Thursday. With the leagues salary cap set for next season, teams can make their signings official at this time and the Raptors are expected to do so at a media conference in the morning. Vasquez, like Patterson, came to the Raptors in Decembers seven-player swap with Sacramento. The 27-year-old came into his own late into the season as he got closer to 100 percent following an offseason ankle surgery. The fiery Venezuelan sparked his new team with passion and hot shooting, anchoring the second unit and backing up Lowry, also playing alongside him in the backcourt on occasion. "Id use the word passionate for Greivis," Casey said back in May. "He has stones. Hes probably, truth be told, probably the most confident player on the team. He feels like he can score on LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan in his prime, which is great and you need that." "If you tell him, Greivis, run through that window right there, hes going to do it. Now he may look at you a little bit, but hell do it." The versatile fourth-year guard averaged 9.5 points and 3.7 assists in 61 games with Toronto, shooting 39 percent from three-point range, after struggling to fit in as a member of the Kings to begin the season. Often expressing his admiration for the city of Toronto and his desire to return this summer, Vasquez has credited the move from Sacramento as a turning point in his young career. "It would be heartbreaking if I dont come back," Vasquez said in his memorable exit interview the day after Torontos postseason elimination. "Im an emotional guy, so I really embrace, Im really committed to the team, to the city, to this franchise." Although a $6.5 million annual salary is on the high end for a backup point guard, the Raptors value Vasquez as more than that and the reasonable two-year term allows them to maintain their flexibility leading up to the summer of 2016. Vasquez has proven himself a capable starter in the league, averaging career-highs of 13.9 points and 9.0 assists while finishing second in Most Improved Player voting with New Orleans in 2012-13. Not only can he co-exist with both newcomer Lou Williams and Lowry in the backcourt, but he serves as insurance if the latter were to miss time with an injury. With the NBA salary cap set at just over $63 million for next season, the tax level at $76.8 million, the Raptors figure to have most of their mid-level exception - roughly $5 million - to spend with three open roster spots after completing deals with Vasquez, Lowry, Patterson and rookie Bruno Caboclo, who was signed to his rookie scale contract Wednesday afternoon. Kevin Mchale Jersey .C.

Instead, the No. 6 Cowboys (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) were left in a state of last-second shock after rival Oklahoma answered with a rally of its own in the closing minutes of a 33-24 win on Saturday. Desmond Roland, who finished with 144 yards rushing and accounted for three touchdowns, appeared to put Oklahoma State up for good with his 1-yard touchdown with 1:46 remaining. His score put the Cowboys a 24-20 lead and appeared to secure an eighth-straight win as well as the Big 12 title and BCS bowl game berth. Oklahoma (10-2, 7-2) quarterback Blake Bell, however, had other plans. The junior, who started earlier this season before losing the job to Trevor Knight, rallied the No. 18 Sooners down the field and capped the drive with a 7-yard touchdown pass with 19 seconds remaining to Jalen Saunders in the corner of the end zone. Saunders touchdown came just five plays after Oklahoma States Justin Gilbert briefly appeared to intercept a pass from Bell, but the cornerback was unable to keep the ball from hitting the turf. Following Bells touchdown pass to Saunders, Eric Striker then ended the game for Oklahoma by recovering a fumble and scoring during a desperation series of laterals. The Sooners were then pelted with snow balls from the rival crowd. Oklahoma has now won at least 10 games in four straight seasons, and Sooners coach Bob Stoops is 8-1 in his career against Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy. "That was a heck of a football game," Gundy said. "Its unfortunate that we came up short. What the game really came down to was that Oklahoma made some key plays on fourth down, and we didnt." The win set off a frenzied celebration in a frigid Boone Pickens Stadium for visiting Oklahoma, while leaving Oklahoma State once again suffering a bitter defeat at the hands of its fiercest rival. This level of disappointment was higher than most for the Cowboys, whose hopes of a second Big 12 championship and BCS bowl game berth in three years were lost after Bells touchdown pass to Saunders. "You juust love it to see a guy whos a competitor like that, whos been sitting on the bench all game, to come in and play so well," Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said of Bell. Yannick Ngakoue Jersey. . "He played great." The shakeup in the BCS bowl picture, however, was the last thing on the mind of Bell -- the Oklahoma junior who replaced injured starter Trevor Knight in the second half. After starting eight games earlier this season for the Sooners, including a win at Notre Dame, Bell began Saturday as Oklahomas third option at quarterback. He ended the game by leading the Sooners on a game-winning 66-yard drive in the closing minutes, going 5 of 8 for 57 yards on the drive and finishing 10-of-16 passing for 140 yards in relief of Knight and backup quarterback Kendal Thompson "I was just thinking that whenever I got my opportunity, I wanted to do the best I could with Trevor going down and Kendal coming in," Bell said. "... Once I got into the rhythm of the play, I felt like everything was clicking." Oklahoma State led for much of the game, only falling behind for the first time early in the fourth quarter when Oklahomas Michael Hunnicutt kicked a 39-yard field goal to put the Sooners up 20-17. Facing a late-game deficit, quarterback Clint Chelf appeared to rally the Cowboys for the win with a 7-play, 89-yard drive on which he completed five straight passes for first downs. Oklahoma stayed close for much of the game thanks to the play of its special teams, doing so with Knight on the bench in the second half with a shoulder injury. Saunders returned a punt 64 yards for a touchdown in the first half and Hunnicutt -- who also kicked a pair of field goals -- also caught a touchdown pass on a fake field goal attempt. Hunnicutts 8-yard touchdown catch from holder Grant Bothun tied the game at 17-17 late in the third quarter, and it came after Bothum darted to the left following the snap before finding a wide-open Hunnicutt. Stoops said the Sooners didnt put the fake in their gameplan until Thursday. "They called it in about 15 seconds before, so we didnt have too much time to think about it," Hunnicutt said. "I was just super excited." ' ' '

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ethan Finlay scored in the 88th minute to give the Columbus Crew a 1-1 tie with Real Salt Lake on Wednesday night. Toni Kroos Jersey . "Im proud of them the way they fought back, but the other side is youre disappointed were in that position in the first place," Columbus coach Gregg Berhalter said. "Were on the sideline celebrating a tying goal but we should have been in a different position." Salt Lake goalkeeper Jeff Attinella was pleased how a makeshift lineup responded after a 4-0 loss Saturday at Seattle, but knew the teams first victory at Crew Stadium in seven games since 2006 was within its grasp. "Initially, Im disappointed when its that late in the game and were up 1-0," he said. "We want to do our best to get three points. It doesnt matter whether were on the road or not, but before the game we would have taken (a point)." Finlay, who entered in the 77th minute, took a through-ball from Ben Speas on the right side and dribbled just inside the penalty area before chipping the ball over Attinella. The third-year player has scored all three of his career goals in the past four games. "(Speas) played a great ball in and Attinella came out quick," Finlay said. Attinella finished with six saves, making four outstanding stops after teammate Luis Gil opened the scoring in the 56th minute to end the teams 275-minute goal drought. Gil scored his second goal of the season after goalkeeper Steve Clark made a save on Abdoulie Mansallys long strike. "I just pounced on it when I saw it coming," Gil said. "You sniff those out. You want those. It was a good strike and a good follow as well. We had a lot of guys up there." Salt Lake is 6-1-7, and Columbus 4-5-5. Jonas Hector Germany Jersey .

SEATTLE -- Mariners closer Fernando Rodney usually gets the job done. Fake Jerseys . He never makes it look easy, though. Rodney allowed the first two batters he faced to reach base in the ninth inning as Seattle clung to a one-run lead over the Detroit Tigers. Rodney walked Alex Avila to lead off the inning and Don Kelly reached on a broken bat flyball to left field. But Rodney struck out Andrew Romine and Rajai Davis before getting Ian Kinsler to ground out to the shortstop to for a 3-2 win over the Tigers Saturday night, wrapping up his 14th save in 16 chances. "I wasnt nervous. I wasnt watching," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon joked. Willie Bloomquist delivered a pair of two-out RBI singles off Detroit starter Drew Smyly to help lift the Mariners. Chris Young allowed two runs and three hits over six innings to improve to 5-2, but Seattle had to hold their breath with Rodney in the ninth. After Avila and Kelly reached in the ninth, manager Lloyd McClendon knew Romine would likely be bunting. He marched to the mound to meet with Rodney and stressed the importance of getting any out they could against Romine. "A lot of times we take that for granted, but thats real important," McClendon said. "You know theyre bunting. Lets not try to do anything spectacular. Lets just make sure we get an out. That was my message." Romine failed to get the bunt down and ultimately struck out on a changeup. Rodney and Davis then had a 10-pitch battle before Rodney finally got a swinging strikeout over a 95 mph fastball on the inside corner. "(Davis) was looking for something soft he can drive to right field," Rodney said. "I see that and I continue to mix it up. The last pitch I said Im going to die with my best pitch in my fastball." A groundball to short by Kinsler allowed Rodney to get out of the jam as the Mariners held on for the win. Stefen Romero and John Buck each singled to put runners on the corners with one out against Smyly (2-4) in the second inning. Cole Gillespie hit a dribbler off the end of the bat just past the mound to score Romero and give the Mariners a 1-0 lead. Bloomquist added another run with a two-out RBI single that scored Buck from second. Smyly allowed seven hits and threw 105 pitches in just four innings of work before being ousted by the Mariners. "He had a little trouble with his command again," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. "He had trouble getting ahead and when he did get ahead, it seemed like they would work their way back into 3-2 counts." Young, meanwhile, was in cruise control for the Mariners. He retired nine of the first 10 batters he faced through the first three innings. Miguel Cabrera hit a solo homer to left field with one out in the fourth inning to get the Tigers on the board. It was Cabreras second home run in two games this series against Seattle and his 10th home run of the season. Seattle answered in the bottom half. Gillespie singled and stole second base to move into scoring position. Bloomquist came through again with two outs, hitting a single to left to score Gillespie and give Seattle a 3-1 cushion. Austin Jackson doubled to lead off the seventh inning and chase Young. Jackson scored on a wild pitch by Dominic Leone to pull back with a run. A walk to Kelly and single from Davis put a pair of runners on but Gillespie ran down a line drive from Kinsler at the wall to preserve Seattles lead.

Its the games against the leagues struggling franchises that have proved to be an issue.PARIS -- France reached the World Cup against the odds after beating Ukraine 3-0 on Tuesday, overturning a first-leg deficit with a performance full of pride and confidence after most observers had written the team off. Backs to the wall after a 2-0 defeat last Friday, France started at a frenetic pace and never let up against a dispirited Ukraine that played most of the second half with 10 men. France was already leading 2-0 by then after Mamadou Sakho scored his first international goal midway through the first half and Karim Benzema added a close-range finish in the 34th. "Ive experienced some great moments but this one is special. Its fabulous, especially after the first game and the bad result we got there," France coach Didier Deschamps said. "The players should get all the credit because they did something special." Ukraine went down to 10 men when fullback Yevhen Khacheridi was red-carded for fouling Franck Ribery in the 47th minute. France sealed qualification in the 72nd when Ukraine subsitute Oleg Gusev turned a cross into his own net under pressure from Sakho. "We should have worked harder and been more organized," Ukraine coach Mykhailo Fomenko said. "I warned my players before the match to avoid the yellow and red cards but this was very difficult." There were delirious scenes at the end as France players rushed off the bench to celebrate. Bullied all night in Kyiv last Friday, the French responded brilliantly in a performance full of bravery, panache and determination. "Its the magic of football. Four days ago we were bad, very bad," Deschamps said. "Tonight the players were present and I had no doubt they would be." The players, under intense pressure in the build-up to the game, grabbed flags and sprinted around the field in jubilation as France avoided the embarrassment of failing to qualify for a major tournament for the first time in 20 years. "Its been a very long time since we saw the Stade de France like this," Ribery said. "We took a big slap in Ukraine and we woke up. We were stuck together until the end and we showed it on the pitch." Olivier Giroud grabbed a microphone and got the crowd singing along to the national anthem as pent-up emotions were welll and truly released. Fake Jerseys From China. "Weve suffered so much, theres been so much sadness," Ribery said. "This is wonderful, magnificent." In a match four years ago, 10,000 travelling Irish fans drowned out the home support. But there was no danger of that this time from Ukraines considerably smaller following. Pre-match footage on the stadiums big screen showed clips of glory days: the Platini years, the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000. Perhaps this was an attempt to jog the crowds memory, a last-ditch plea to get them to rally behind the team. Or perhaps it was a simpler message: "This is how to win, remember?" The words to "La Marseillaise" then popped up on the screen, offering further encouragement to show their support. It seemed to have the desired effect as France poured forward and had Ukraine firmly on the back foot from the outset, with Mathieu Valbuena going close with a rising shot and Paul Pogba and Benzema heading over from good positions. Piatov had kept eight consecutive clean sheets but his resistance was finally broken when Sakho pounced to turn the ball in from close range after Piatov pushed away Riberys shot from the edge of the penalty area. The way Sakho sprinted to the bench, thumping his chest with pride, showed just how intense the strain had been on the French since Friday. Some of the tackling was ferocious, as this time France stood up to the physical challenge after their battering in Kyiv. "I know the French team is very strong and can play at a very high level. They were playing at home and their fans were very good," Fomenko said. "I regret a few things. We werent good psychologically. We needed to be ready and I dont think we were." Piatov was well beaten for the second goal when Cabayes attempted shot deflected favourably into the path of Benzema and he stroked it into the bottom corner. Moments before halftime, Sakho stretched his leg high to poke the ball away from Roman Zozulya as he was about to shoot and, from the resulting corner, Andriy Yarmolenkos goal-bound hit Mathieu Debuchys chest. The French bench rose in unison when Gusev turned a cross into his own net and substitute Giroud almost made it 4-0 but his point-blank header was superbly saved. ' ' '
MIAMI -- Stephen Strasburg against the woebegone Miami Marlins figured to be no contest, and it was. Juan Thornhill Jersey . Miami won in a rout. Giancarlo Stanton tied a career high with five RBIs, including a three-run homer off Strasburg, and the Marlins broke an eight-game losing streak by beating the Washington Nationals 11-2 Tuesday night. Both benches and bullpens cleared briefly in the fourth inning when Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and the Nationals Ian Desmond engaged in a heated, nose-to-nose conversation at home plate. Desmond was unhappy that Marlins starter Tom Koehler threw several pitches high and inside. Among the tunes playing in the Miami clubhouse after the victory was Alice Coopers "No More Mr. Nice Guy." "It feels great," Saltalamacchia said. "We faced a great pitcher. It feels great to be able to make him work tonight." Strasburg (1-2) allowed six runs and eight hits in four innings. He fell to 2-3 at Marlins Park with an ERA of 8.61. "Weve put together some pretty good at-bats off him over the last couple of years, and had some good games against him," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "We had a nice plan. Guys were aggressive. He threw quite a few fastballs early in the count, and we were ready for them." That has often been the approach of hitters against Strasburg so far this season. "They dont want me to get comfortable," the right-hander said. "A lot of the dominant pitchers with swing-and-miss stuff, thats what their approach is going to be. I felt I had a good mindset today. It was one of those days where it seemed like every pitch I threw, they hit it." Koehler (2-1) allowed one hit and five walks in seven scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 1.89. The performance was a welcome change for a team that had an ERA of 6.12 during the losing streak. Desmond became annoyed when he barely avoided being hit by an inside pitch from Koehler. Desmond hollered at Koehler and spat toward the mound. Saltalamacchia then said something to Desmond, and their testy exchange began. Umpire Marty Foster stepped between them, and the confrontation didnt escalate. "I wasnt necessarily thinking that he had intentions of hitting me," Desmond said. "It wasnt intended to escalate to what it did, but was heat-of-the-moment stuff." Koehler said he went into the game mindful of the need to pitch inside against the Nationals. "Guys tend to get a little upset when they get crowded," Koehler said. "They had been attacking fastballs over the plate. Its our job as starters to make sure they know thats our part of the plate. Weve been beaten inside too many times late in the game in the last couple of series because we havent established inside." Stanton homered in the first inning, hit a two-run double in the fifth and scored three times. He came into the game ranked second in the majors in RBIs and now has 21. Hes batting .429 with runners in scoring position. Marcell Ozuna tied a career high with four hits, and Casey McGehee had three of the Marlins 15 hits. "We talked Monday about having guys step up," Redmond said. "We saw the entire team step up. We feel like our lineup can do a lot of damage, and I think you saw that tonight." The Marlins beat Washington for the first time in five tries this season, and for only the third time in 16 meetings since July. Zach Walters hit his first career homer in the ninth for the Nationals, who totalled five hits. Miami led 3-0 before Strasburg got an out. Christian Yelich and Ozuna singled, and Stanton followed with a homer to centre field. The Marlins added three more runs in the second. Adeiny Hechavarria led off with a triple on his 25th birthday, Ozuna singled home a run and McGehee hit a two-out, two-run single. Strasburg struck out five to increase his NL-leading total to 33, but his ERA rose to 6.00. The Marlins added five runs in the fifth to make it 11-0. "One of those games," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "But nonetheless its important that we play well, and we didnt. Thats troubling." NOTES: Nationals OF Denard Span (concussion) might be ready for a rehabilitation assignment by the end of the week, Williams said. ... Nationals OF Nate McLouth returned to the lineup after sitting out two games because of a sore left knee. ... Ozuna was back in the lineup after missing one start with a bruised foot. ... The Nationals Steven Souza singled for his first major league hit. ...

I managed to get a couple of points off a couple of the guys, but its safe to say its probably not my next gig after cricket.It was fantastic to see the people there preparing for the Olympics, though - the fitness and skill on show was truly remarkable. I wish them all the best for Rio.Weve got a big game to prepare for on Thursday. We know how important it will be to start the series well, but well try to treat it no differently to any other, just look to prepare in the same way, with the same intensity.Theres been a lot of talk about external factors in the build up to the Test but we try to take all of that out of the equation. Sure, its bound to still be there, but in the periphery of our minds.I have no idea what kind of reception Mohammad Amir will get on his return. Whatever happens, happens. All we know is he is a quality bowler. Pakistan seamer Mohammad Amir is looking forward to bowling at England’s captain and ‘backbone’ Alastair Cook when he makes his return to Test cricket At the same time, we have batsmen that are capable of countering his threat. Were in good form and have exceptional skills ourselves.He has talked about wanting to become number one in the world. Its hard to judge given I havent properly faced him - other than once or twice in under-15s cricket! He is coming back after a long period of time out of cricket, so Id imagine he has a long way to go for that.Look at Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad; both have performed day in, day out, for a number of years and only recently have they reached number one. Its not something thats going to happen overnight for Amir.We have Gary Ballance back in the squad, and Toby Roland-Jones linking up with us for the first time. Who is Toby Roland-Jones? All you need to know about the Middlesex quick called into Englands Test squad to face Pakistan Ive played for the Lions before with Toby. He has obviously done really well in county cricket recently and has rightly been rewarded with a call up into the Test squad.Gary is a class act. Everyone has enjoyed having him back in the squad; were all behind him, and Im sure he will score plenty of runs.He is someone who has scored four hundreds already in 15 Test matches. You dont have those stats and average over 50 with 28 hundreds in first-class cricket, if youre not a proven player. England batsman Gary Ballance admits he was surprised to be called back into the Test team for their series with Pakistan He also played really well for Yorkshire against Middlesex last week, hitting a hundred, so will come into the game on Thursday with his confidence on a high. Frank Clark Womens Jersey. Were back at Lords for the first Test. I got a hundred there last month against Sri Lanka, and while its always nice to score runs for the team, to get onto the prestigious Lords honours board made it particularly special - something Id always wanted to do.Hopefully I can get my name back up there again this week, although its not going to be easy. Jonny Bairstow is hoping for similar celebrations at Lords to when he reached three figures against Sri Lanka Left-arm seam is obviously not something we faced against Sri Lanka and it will play a big role in this series.There are some things we learned from playing Pakistan the UAE last year in terms of facing some of their bowlers, but it will be completely different conditions here, both overhead and with the pitches, compared to that tour.Pakistan have got a strong side all the way through. We know it is going to be a tough challenge, but hopefully playing with home advantage can help us.It served Andy Murray alright this week - you saw how much it meant to him to win Wimbledon again.It was great too to see England win 3-0 in Australia in the rugby union. Obviously, its always special to go to Australia and win. The way the guys performed in all three Test matches was brilliant to watch. Englands rugby team celebrate after their 3-0 Test series triumph in Australia There are a lot of rugby fans in the squad that took enjoyment from that - Cookie is a big rugby fan, Broady, too. Everyone kept a keen eye on those games while they were going on.Theres a lot of guys that take a keen interest in football too and watch that religiously, so by contrast, it was obviously disappointing to see England go out earlier than expected in the Euros.But thats part of sport sometimes - Im sure the team will move on, bounce back and come back stronger.Watch the first Investec Test between England and Pakistan from Lords, live on Sky Sports 2 from 10am on Thursday.  Or watch from £6.99 with NOW TV, no contract.

LONDON -- Roger Federer already had saved one match point in the Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic, and had won four games in a row in the fourth set. Randy White Youth Jersey . As both players sat on the sideline during the changeover before Federer was going to serve to try to force a fifth set, most of the nearly 15,000 spectators began chanting "Ro-ger! Ro-ger! Ro-ger!" Federer did extend the match. He could not manage to win it. Falling just short of what would have been his record eighth championship at the All England Club, Federer lost to Djokovic 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 Sunday in a back-and-forth tussle that lasted nearly four hours. "In a match like the one today, where I needed support, they were there. I could sense that they really wished me well and hoped for me to either get back in the match or hopefully lift another trophy here at Wimbledon," Federer said about the crowd. "I already have seven. Its not like I need another one," he added. "But it would have been awfully nice to have it. I think thats what the feeling was of the people, and I felt that." A month shy of his 33rd birthday, and a father to two sets of twins, Federer would have been the oldest man in more than a half-century to win Wimbledon. He also would have been the first since 1948 to save a match point in the tournaments final and go on to take the title. Federer was playing in his first Grand Slam final since 2012, when he beat Andy Murray in the final at the All England Club to earn his record 17th Grand Slam trophy overall. Last year, Federer lost in the second round at the grass-court major, his earliest exit at Wimbledon since 2002, and at any Grand Slam tournament since 2013. He was struggling with a bothersome back and experimenting with a larger racket, and there were whispers about whether the Swiss star could ever challenge for another championship at one of tennis four most important tournaments. But for most of this fortnight, Federer played superbly, serve-and-volleying more than usual and getting broken only once in 89 service games heading into Sunday. "Its the best Roger Ive seen in years," said Djokovics coach, Boris Becker, a three-time Wimbledon champion who had a playing rivalry against Federers coach, Stefan Edberg. But Djokovic might just be the games best returner nowadays, and he broke Federer four times, including in the matchs last game. "I respect him and his achievements, his career. Hes a great champion on and off the court," Djokovic said. "To be able to win against him, as one of my greatest rivals, on this occasion, on a court that hes been dominating for so many years, makes it a very special trophy for me." Djokovic, who is 27, spoke about how he hopes this victory will spur him to add to his seven major titles. Federer was asked whether this might have been his last hurrah. "There is no guarantee that youre going to be ever there again or not. Or maybe theres much more to come. Its really impossible to answer that question," Federer said. "Im very happy to see that with feeling (healthy), I can produce a performance like I did the last two weeks. That clearly makes me believe that this was just a steppingstone to many more great things in the future." Emmitt Smith Womens Jersey . Edmonton opened the season with 14 straight victories before falling Friday night 10-8 to the host Colorado Mammoth in National Lacrosse League action. Jay Novacek Womens Jersey .J. -- The NHL reduced its penalty against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday for signing Ilya Kovalchuk in 2010.SALT LAKE CITY - Trey Burke started on the bench again but was hard to miss once he got in the game.He turned his frustration into aggressiveness and scored 15 points in the second quarter, as the Utah Jazz rolled to a 108-73 win over the reeling Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.Its new to me. I dont know if I was comfortable with it, but I knew I had to be ready to play, said Burke, who has always been a starter since hes played basketball. Its a different view of the game.Gordon Hayward scored 24 points and Joe Ingles had a season-high 16 points as the Jazz won consecutive games for the first time this month.Dante Exum had 13 in his second straight start in front of Burke, who made a big difference for Utah, which outscored Brooklyn 33-16 in the second period.I was locked in from the start and I was looking at ways to attack the defence before I even got out there, Burke said.Jarrett Jack had 16 points and Mason Plumlee added 11 for the Nets, who have dropped three of four.One game after Brooklyns worst defeat of the season — 123-84 to the Clippers — the Nets were again listless.Collectively, we need to put more into the game effort-wise. Its not really a strategic thing anymore, we just need to give more, Plumlee said.Brooklyn is 3-10 in January and a half-game back of Charlotte for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.There has been a little drama over 19-year-old Exum, the fifth overall pick in last years draft, supplanting Burke so early. But if they both play the way they did against the Nets, it may not matter who starts.With Alec Burks out for the season and his replacement, Rodney Hood, out for a few more weeks, Exum and Burke played together for stretches.The combination worked well as the Jazz looked to run at every opportunity on the sluggish Nets. The Jazz had 27 fast-break points to Brooklyns nine. Trysten Hill Womens Jersey. Were best when we are in transition and the ball is moving, Burke said. Coach has been on us heavy about pace and getting the ball up the court off the rebounds.Instead of sulking, Burke played with an aggressive attitude from the moment he entered the game on both ends.He is one of the guys thats finding a good balance between scoring and playmaking, Utah coach Quin Snyder said. The other thing I thought he did is he guarded. When your point guard is at the point of the attack, is tough-minded defensively and willing to talk, that anchors your whole defence.The Jazz made 9 of 13 3-pointers on their way to a 58-37 halftime lead. Burke had four and Ingles made three from beyond the arc.Every guy on the team and the coaching staff has been telling me to shoot it, shoot it but I like getting other guys on the team involved and being that middleman, Ingles said.TIP-INSNets: Deron Williams, who played his first 51/2 seasons in Utah, missed his ninth game with a rib injury. ... The Nets were outrebounded 42-29 and shot just 38.7 per cent. ... To add insult to injury, a Brooklyn 3-pointer to beat the shot clock in the fourth quarter was overturned on video review.Jazz: Utah shot 53.2 per cent from the field, just off its season high of 53.4 at Orlando on Dec. 19. ... The Jazz made 11 of their first 15 3-point attempts and then missed their next 10. ... Even though the Jazz were up by 35, seldom-used Jeremy Evans received an ovation for a spectacular block in the final minute.A COMPLETE GAMEThe 35-point margin was largest win for the Jazz this season. It was a solid all-around game for us. We finally put our foot down a little bit and got a big cushion, Hayward said.UP NEXTNets: Host Portland on Monday.Jazz: Host Boston on Monday. ' ' '
